Happy Holidays

If you have ever stayed with us in the past, you know that every year I send out holiday postcards to our past guests.  Unless you have stayed here multiple times though, I can only keep records back 3 years. SO if it has been awhile since we have seen you, or you have moved, you may not get a Holiday card.  Sorry.
Please know that we are so thankful to all who have stayed with us in the past and especially those who keep coming back.

This Holiday season we would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and may you all have a Joyous, HEALTHY, and prosperous new year.

Fall foliage

Driving around Jackman, the colors are really starting to pop.  At least in a bit higher elevations.  Here in town, the red maples are not quite in full color yet.  Take a drive though, you will be surprised what you see.   Our ATV guests have also shared some great photos.

Our guests enjoy nesting

Many of our guests, especially the ones who come back year after year, like to “nest” and add their own comforts of home.  This is what Cindy and Jeremy bring every summer.

They enjoy cooking outside. They have a grill, cast iron pots and pans and a smoker.  They made us pancakes on the grill and we spent a day hanging out with them and other friends while smoking a pork and beef roast using rubs they got form Sawyers Maple.

4th of July award

Every 4th of July, a few of our guests enter the float competition.  They always get creative. This year, they did Grease!   Played great music, dressed in 50s attire and even had a couple T birds on board.  They one the Judges award this year.   It was fun getting it ready.

If you go to our facebook page, I captured a brief video of them coming back to camp.

ATV trails in Jackman

Even with some closures due to logging during the week, our guests are finding there is plenty of riding to be found. This past weekend, here are some photos going south of town.

It was a beautiful day and they even made it through a 15 min downpour.

4th of July 2021 in Jackman

The 4th of July in Jackman is always a fun day. It usually starts with a parade through town.  Not only locals participate but we have a group of our guests that enter the parade every year.  And win!  SO feel free to join in the fun, even if you are just visiting.

After the parade, here at Cozy Cove, we have our annual potluck picnic with our guests. If you are not staying with us this year, you are still invited. Just bring a dish to share.

At dusk, the town has an awesome fireworks display. Some say it is the best in Maine.

This year the JMMRCOC is sponsoring A FREEDOM RACE in the morning of the 4th. They hope to make this an annual event too. Anyone is welcome to participate. The best part, we can cheer on the racers from our shore or along Main street.
